An operating Pd//D2O, Li+, Cl(-)//Pt cell, placed in an external electrostatic field, yielded unexpected results, viz. (i) Morphological changes in the form of discrete sites exhibiting molten-like features, i.e. features that require substantial energy expenditure. (ii) Presence of elements (Al, Mg, Ca, Si, Zn, ...) that could not be extracted from cell(More)
Recent years have witnessed renewed interest in the hydrogen economy, with emphasis on the metal/hydrogen system and its application to energy conversion efforts. Two industrially important aspects are emphasized, viz. the amount of hydrogen stored and the rate at which it can be transferred (absorbed/desorbed) because they are crucial factors in the design(More)
Phages are viruses whose hosts are bacterial cells. They identify their hosts by specific receptor molecules on the outside of the host cell. Once the phages find their specific receptors, they bind to the bacterial cell and inject their nucleic acid inside the cell. The binding between phage and host can be so specific that only certain strains of a single(More)
Almost two decades ago, Fleischmann and Pons reported excess enthalpy generation in the negatively polarized Pd/D-D2O system, which they attributed to nuclear reactions. In the months and years that followed, other manifestations of nuclear activities in this system were observed, viz. tritium and helium production and transmutation of elements. In this(More)
Earlier we reported that the pits generated in CR-39 detectors during Pd/D co-deposition experiments are consistent with those observed for pits that are of a nuclear origin. Spacer experiments and track modeling have been done to characterize the properties of the particles that generated the tracks in the CR-39 detectors. The effect of water on the(More)
In his criticisms of the review article on LENR by Krivit and Marwan, Shanahan has raised a number of issues in the areas of calorimetry, heat after death, elemental transmutation, energetic particle detection using CR-39, and the temporal correlation between heat and helium-4. These issues are addressed by the researchers who conducted the original work(More)
The effect of an external electric field on the physical appearance of the Pd/D electrode in an operating cell is discussed. It is shown that the individual globules of t h e " c a u l i f l o we r – l i k e " s t r u c t u r e u n d e r g o a s h a p e c h a n g e e x h i b i t i n g t wo d i s t i n c t features, viz those that require energy expenditure(More)
Three methods of tritium data analysis are considered—comparison between experimental and theoretical data, total mass balance and curve-fitting. The evidence for tritium production in electrochemical cells, with few exceptions (Will et al, 1992), is based on measurements of tritium increase in the electrolyte phase in excess of that predicted from the(More)
Raman spectroscopy and surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) have many attributes that make them attractive for field detection of environmental contaminants, industrial process control, as well as materials detection/identification in agriculture, pharmaceuticals, law enforcement/first responders, geology, and archeology. However, portable, robust,(More)
